Phase 0 Pre-implementation analysis
The purpose of the initial phase is to determine the general framework of the project: the scope, a schedule and a budget. Persons designated by the customer and SNP Poland, participate in meetings which gradually refine the functional and organizational scope of the system, to meet the requirements of the company. On this basis, SNP Poland prepares an SAP system implementation offer including all significant assumptions for further project phases.
Deliverables of the phase: A system implementation offer, contract
Phase 1 Project preparation
In this phase, the implementation project and methods of working in the project (work regulations, training regulations, documenting, status reporting, record keeping and work accounting, use of resources, etc.) are defined in detail.
Deliverables of the phase: Project charter, Project regulations
Phase 2 Conceptual design
In this phase, training for the customer’s employees in the field of SAP solutions is conducted and an Implementation Blueprint ―a document describing how the customer’s business processes will be implemented in the IT system ― is prepared.
Deliverables of the phase: Implementation Blueprint
Phase 3 Prototype realisation
In the third phase, the so-called system prototype is prepared based on the implementation blueprint, through the parameterisation of the system settings. The prototype undergoes tests within individual functionalities and integration tests of the whole system to check if it functions properly.
Deliverables of the phase: A prototype of the SAP system
Phase 4 Preparation for operation
In the fourth phase, end users are trained in functions performed in the system. The SAP system is also filled with real data from IT systems that currently exist in the company (or other data sources).
Deliverables of the phase: A production system
Phase 5 Go live and operation
In this phase – after system go live – end users are supported on the first days of their work. Furthermore, the technical settings of the system are optimised.
Deliverables of the phase: Ongoing use of the SAP system
